Horse welfare research

Bursary operation image

Finding the root causes of welfare problems allows us to help horses by getting to the heart of an issue. 

We also believe in using scientific evidence to help guide our work.

We offer a small range of grants and bursaries to help support research on subjects that have an impact on horse welfare. Most are undertaken in collaboration with veterinary schools and institutes.

We also undertake our own field research into the impact on the welfare of horses transported long distances across Europe to slaughter, and present our evidence to law makers, scientists and enforcement bodies.
